Diversity, Equity & Inclusivity (DEI) Training

"Recent studies show the LGBTQ community's buying power is approaching $1 trillion. So not only are businesses pushing sensitivity for ethical reasons, but they're doing so to help their bottom lines."

Tampa Bay Times, August 22, 2019

The news is in: Inclusivity a win-win for both consumers and businesses. In the age of social media reviews and 24-hour news cycles, organizations are recognizing the need and benefits of creating welcoming and inclusive environments. Inclusivity is the โ€œnext levelโ€ in consumer services. With over 25 years of experience in supporting the wellbeing of LGBTQ+ community, Metro Inclusive Health is eager to share best practices.

Our LGBTQ+ Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion (DEI) Trainings have been proven to promote inclusive practices among staff and foster a culture of overall excellence. We have helped improve cultural competency for a wide range of participating organizations, from churches to restaurants to major financial institutions.

Virtual training is offered at a rate of $200/hour for up to 80 people and includes a no cost 15-minute consultation to discuss how our trainer can tailor the LGBTQ+ DEI Training to your industry. Request your consultation below!

The training went very well! The material in the training was exactly what I was hoping for, and our instructor was fantastic. I think and hope that our members learned a lot, and it was definitely a good opportunity for questions to be asked that are normally uncomfortable to inquire about. Thank you so much again for your patience and working with us to hold the training!

I really enjoyed hearing the conversations throughout the offices after this morning's training with Metro Inclusive Health! My goal was to not only bring awareness but to start the conversation and have our staff become more in tune with the changes happening around them! ... There's such a large community we serve and the DEI Training really helped the agency move in the right direction!
